Instant Pot Greek Salad Dressing Chicken Thighs

Marinating chicken in a bottle of Greek salad dressing produces fantastic results!  Every time I have made Greek salad dressing chicken over the years, I wonder why I don’t make it more.  These Instant Pot Greek dressing chicken thighs are delicious!  I made this entire meal all in one pot in under 30 minutes.  Your family will love this super easy, hands-off weeknight dinner!

In my real life- I make simple chicken and potato recipes for my family often.   When I serve chicken, potato, and carrots for dinner usually will include cheese or ketchup for the kids.   My husband loves the Greek Vinaigrette, and the two of us will add a bunch of kalamata olives to ours.   This meal also makes fantastic leftovers and reheats easily.   This dinner is only four ingredients and takes less than 30 minutes to make in your pressure cooker.

  • Recipe Tip- This recipe can also be made in a slow cooker.  All you need to do is place the ingredients in a slow cooker and cook together for 4-5 hours.  You may want to brown the chicken thighs if you want crispy chicken.

This recipe is so easy.  All you need is:

  1. six chicken thighs- about 1 pound
  2. 5 red-skinned or Yukon gold potatoes, washed and quartered.
  3. 4-5 large carrots
  4. 1 bottle of Greek Vinegarette salad dressing
  5. 1 teaspoon of cornstarch
  6. An Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker
  7. A vegetable steamer or trivet that came with your pressure cooker.

I used the saute function twice when cooking this meal.  I first browned the chicken thighs for 1 minute on each side before cooking them.    When the pressure cooking process was all done, I took the food out and sauteed the potatoes to make them slightly crispy.  I also added some cornstarch to the sauce afterward.  I turned the leftover dressing into a sauce.  This dinner was delicious!

I love recipes with minimal ingredients for weeknights.
